One of the finest white wines we've found at this price point in England. Ortega is originally from Germany but has found a home in English vineyards. It's fresh and mineral, with flavours of green apple, pear and lemon rind.
Adrian Pike took over the Westwell estate in the Kenitsh countryside in 2017 and has determinedly upped the quality of the winemaking and viticulture so it now competes happily with the big boys of English wine. Unusually for England, all the fruit is estate grown so Adrian can have complete control over quality. He uses low intervention methods, favouring indigenous yeasts, lower levels of sulphites and no chemicals in the vineyard.
